Contra mulieres...

See the threads here and here. There is nothing worse than a religious woman. That is to say, a loudmouth religious woman. We've all met them, to our sorrow. They are that grotesque combination of strident, ignorant and opinionated. They make me sick to my stomach, riding on the feminism of our time and making all our lives a bloody misery.

According to the Scriptures, women aren't supposed to have theological opinions and are to keep silence in the presence of men and in church. I bet this particular woman, like so many other "traditionalist" types that I have met or heard of, does none of that. Or if she rejects the "traditionalist" label, that's fine. Then I expect she's a lay reader, conducts Bible study sessions and sits on a parish council; she may even be a euphemistic monster of Holy Communion, taking as many liberties as she can get away with out of a church that denies her Holy Orders (which is what they all secretly want). Not the sort to cover her head in church. Does she wear trousers? Well, if she isn't clinically obese then that's highly likely.

God rot all such women!

St Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!


  1. Yesterday I was at the Benedictine abbey of Norcia, and I saw in astonishment as a woman knelt there the entire day (with only a couple of brief breaks) with her missal and breviary next to her, hearing all of the Divine Office, from Matins at 3:45am until Compline at 7:45pm. All this time she didn't say a word. Of course she was dressed like Our Lady (floor-length dress and head covered), but clearly a laywoman. She was s beautiful sight and no doubt a prayer powerhouse. Would that we have more ladies like this!

    1. Truly pious women are the heroes of the Church. They do all the unsung things behind the scenes and ask nothing but the Sacraments. I am not worthy to loose the latchet of their shoes.

      But I will NOT tolerate a woman with a loud mouth. Let her be despised of men and driven out!

  2. Diane is a serial combox pest. Whenever there is an Orthodox or Catholic blogger who discusses Orthodox/Catholic issues, there she will be, always saying the same things, over and over again, with the same sanctimonious tone and expressions. She reminds me of the kid at school who always put their hand up to answer every single question. Eventually people laugh, then they roll their eyes, then they sigh, then they groan, then they snap. I notice that the discussion eventually became about her, not the blog post. Blog owners would do well to simply ban her. I hope you have Patrick.

    1. It's obvious that she doesn't actually *know* anything. She is the sort who has had a cursory glance at a few heavily biased history books and then thinks of herself as an expert and shoots off at the mouth.

      As for banning her, I don't recollect her ever commenting here.

    2. Ban her in advance, I suppose is what I meant.

  3. The main problem with Diane is not that she is a woman, but that she is a troll.

    For more information on the subject, may I suggest:

    Most of the relevant information can be found in the first paragraph of that wikipedia entry, as follows:

    "In Internet slang, a troll ... is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people,[1] by posting inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."

    I believe that your mistake, at least in the sergesblog interchange, is that you directly addressed the troll. That only encourages such beasts as her. The thing to do is to call her out as a troll, not to address her or respond to her at all, and to warn others not to 'feed the troll'.

    That is what I did in the opuspublicus comment line, and that shut her down right quickly. I recommend that you do the same.
